About Edinburgh Jazz and Blues Festival: New Orleans Swamp Donkeys Traditional Jass Band
Sorry, but this event has been and gone!
If you close your eyes and listen to the voice of singer-trumpeter James Williams you’ll hear Louis Armstrong in his heyday. The Wall Street Journal called the Swamp Donkeys “one of the zingiest of the new hot jazz bands from the Crescent City”, The Scotsman reviewed “this was jazz as jass: the Donkeys carry a torch for the vintage New Orleans kind, and with a vengeance: in full flight they’re an exuberant and fairly unstoppable force.” While The New York Times said “recalls the New Orleans music of roughly a century ago, with youthful, high-spirited aplomb.”
